Doesn't suprise me one bit. I've used a few CC sponsored travel agencies, wasn't thrilled and certainly didn't provide much in the way of service.

Glad to know Cruise Freek TAs are so dedicated! Very Happy

Helen,

Some agencies will sometimes rebate commission via prepaid gratuities (it's their way around RCCL/Celebrity no-rebating policy).
